One Dead In Illinois From Vaping-Related Breathing Problems


At least one person has died in Illinois, after they used an e-cigarette product that appears to have caused fatal breathing problems. The death may be the first vaping fatality in the nation.

The Department of Public Health didn’t identify the person, but said they had the same “constellation” of symptoms as more than 20 others who have been hospitalized after vaping. They’ve felt out of breath, they’ve been coughing heavily, even vomiting.

At least half of those people have gotten sick just this past week.

The popular products made by JUUL and other companies contain concentrated amounts of nicotine and other chemicals. Some even use e-cigarettes to smoke concentrated THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
